On Marriage: Moments of Certainty

There are occasional moments when I look around me and realize that beyond a doubt, I made the right choice marrying C. Moments like these are precious. And they stick in my mind like a picture in a collage. I've learned to slow down whenever I find myself experiencing such a moment. Because they don't last forever.

This weekend, when I turned around to see C playing with our 2 month old niece Pepper, I had such a moment. (I also had one the first time I saw him hold our now 2 1/2 year old nephew Danzig in the hospital.) He was so casual with her -- way better with her than I was, in fact! And you could just tell that he was happy pulling on her chunky legs and feeding her a bottle. He was even so kind as to rock her to sleep to allow my mom, sister & I the time to go track down a doughnut for Danzig.

It's something about seeing the future. Seeing a side of him I don't see often. The sweet and tender side. He's going to be - and strives to be - a great dad. We're not ready for kids yet - but I know when they come, I'll have a great partner. And that makes me excited.

But for now, I"ll just take this moment & store it away. ♥


  1. I get the same feeling when I see or hear my husband playing with our niece, 9 and nephew, 7. He just knows how to rough house and get them giggling it's adorable. I have many a picture where they are piled on top of him smiling. Those moments are precious and I'm glad C has given you that.

  2. Aww. How sweet! Someday, you are both going to make great parents. :)
